Doctor Who (Fri., FOX) TV-14 The absent-minded time lord’s latest exploit in time and space finds the Doctor doing the story of Jonah in space when his time-ship is swallowed by a “Space Whale” that supports a colony of friendly aliens in its gut. The first half of this two-parter is all about marveling at the weird, showing off Hugh Laurie’s trademark giddy wonder at the often really gross mechanics of life in the whale. But hints of conflict arise with the third-act introduction of Kate Mulgrew as a straight-laced space captain who wants the animal as a trophy. My score: 8
